About this product
- DescriptionIn order to equip hopeful graduate students with the kwledge necessary to pass the qualifying examination, the authors have assembled and solved standard and original problems from major American universities - Boston University, University of Chicago, University of Colorado at Boulder, Columbia, University of Maryland, University of Michigan, Michigan State, Michigan Tech, MIT, Princeton, Rutgers, Stanford, Stony Brook, University of Tennessee at Kxville, and the University of Wisconsin at Madison - and Moscow Institute of Physics and Techlogy. A wide range of material is covered and comparisons are made between similar problems of different schools to provide the student with eugh information to feel comfortable and confident at the exam. Guide to Physics Problems is published in two volumes: this book, Part 2, covers Thermodynamics, Statistical Mechanics and Quantum Mechanics; Part 1, covers Mechanics, Relativity and Electrodynamics. Praise for A Guide to Physics Problems, Part 2 - Thermodynamics, Statistical Physics, and Quantum Mechanics : ' A Guide to Physics Problems, Part 2 t only serves an important function, but is a pleasure to read. By selecting problems from different universities and even different scientific cultures, the authors have effectively avoided a one-sided approach to physics. All the problems are good, some are very interesting, some positively intriguing, a few are crazy; but all of them stimulate the reader to think about physics, t merely to train you to pass an exam. I personally received considerable pleasure in working the problems, and I would guess that anyone who wants to be a professional physicist would experience similar enjoyment. This book will be a great help to students and professors, as well as a source of pleasure and enjoyment' - From Foreword by Max Dresden. 'An excellent resource for graduate students in physics and, one expects, also for their teachers' - Daniel Kleppner, Lester Wolfe Professor of Physics Emeritus, MIT. 'A nice selection of problems! Thought-provoking, entertaining, and just plain fun to solve' - Giovanni Vignale, Department of Physics and Astromy, University of Missouri at Columbia. 'Interesting indeed and enjoyable. The problems are ingenious and their solutions very informative. I would certainly recommend it to all graduate students and physicists in general! Particularly useful for teachers who would like to think about problems to present in their course' - Joel Lebowitz, Rutgers University. 'A very thoroughly assembled, interesting set of problems that covers the key areas of physics addressed by Ph.D. qualifying exams. !Will prove most useful to both faculty and students. Indeed, I plan to use this material as a source of examples and illustrations that will be worked into my lectures' - Douglas Mills, University of California at Irvine.
